It's not odd to walk into a bar these days and see everyone sitting there looking at their phones - texting, Facebooking, playing games, etc. No one's talking to each other. No one's hitting on anyone. They're just glued to their phones and occasionally drinking.

But a bar in Brazil has set out to change that with a new invention - the 'Offline Glass.'

A bar called Salve Jorge Bar in Sao Paulo, Brazil is using new beer glasses that are missing a chunk off the base. So to keep the glass standing up, you have to slide your cell phone underneath it to prop it up.

That means you can either hold your drink and use your phone one-handed, or put your drink and phone down to talk to other people.

So yeah, this is a million-dollar idea just waiting to be stolen. Except for the part where no one would actually use it. Who the hell wants to use their phone as a coaster and risk getting it all wet?
